The book is about a girl named Matilda who loves reading (like me!). But her parents think her a ‘spoiled brat’ and don’t take much notice of her (not at all like mine!). Its weird though why Matilda’s parents hate her because at the age of four she read ‘Great Expectations’, by Charles Dickens! (Charles Dickens is a great English writer and ‘Great Expectations’ is one of his most popular books!). Matilda’s dad is so mean that Matilda has to teach him a few basic lessons like she puts super glue on his hat, which was funny, and she makes his hair blonde, which was weird. When Matilda joins school, the horrible headmistress, Ms.Trunchbull, gives her even more trouble but Ms.Honey, her teacher, is amazed with Matilda for knowing so much math and for reading and writing so well!
- The way he makes the funny terms he uses to describe a person or situation. Even my mum laughed when she heard the term ‘spoiled brat’ and ‘digusting little blister’
- Chapter 3-The Hat And The Superglue. It is my favorite chapter in this book because it is super funny and the way Roald Dahl describes it is just LOL!
Did you know that Roald Dahl lived in Aylesbury,UK, and in there is ‘The Story Centre’ where you can explore Roald Dahl’s books and life in a fun way. Down the road from here, there is a public library that has a corner called ‘Matilda’s Corner’! I recommend to go there if you visit the UK!
